Canadian guitarist Dylan Rockett has been composing, recording, performing, improvising, and teaching music for over 10 years. Dylan is not only a musician with many hours of recording experience but also a unique artist blending playing styles from; Jazz, R&B, Funk, Hip Hop, Flamenco, and Rock. Dylan draws strong influences from artists who are demanding and popular innovators in their own fields such as Derek Trucks, Robert Glasper, and Joe Hisaishi. These artists’ unique compositional approach when in the studio or performing live, as well as their choice of instrumentation, timbers, musical phrasing and melodies are the elements that Dylan gravitates most strongly towards.
At present, Dylan Rockett teaches at Beyond the Beat studio, located in the East end of Toronto, Dylan studies and records music at Revolution Recording, Humber College, and York University. In addition to independently co-producing his group’s debut ten track album, he has performed regularly in major venues across Toronto such as the Drake Hotel, Massey Hall, and the Sound Academy.
